I tracked it down to tp/ext/epub3.pm and there is actually already a
FIXME, I knew that something like that was bound to happen:

    # FIXME INFO_JS_DIR is used both as a filesystem directory name
    # and as path in document, as a path in document '../' should be
    # used whatever File::Spec->updir() is.

To me the basic issue is that INFO_JS_DIR is used, in HTML.pm in
output(), both as an HTML path l 8941 and to copy local files near l
10184 of HTML.pm.  As a local file path, it would make sense to
use backward slash, but not as HTML path.

Gavin, do you have a preference on how to fix that?  I can only think
of having two different variables depending on the use, as local path
and as HTML path, but it is not a good solution.

Note that we could have similar issues for other paths, I haven't
